Steps to Reduce Hay Fever Symptoms

By Donna Stark

Have you been sneezing and coughing lately? Are your eyes watery, red, and itchy? What about your nose? Is it congested or runny? Well, you may think that you are coming down with a cold or the flu, but the good news is that you probably aren't sick at all. On the other hand, the bad news is that you could be suffering from a fever ... a special type of fever called hay fever. And yes, you read that right. Hay fever season is still in effect and it could bring you a heaping dose of misery!

Hay Fever Horror Show

You don't have to wait until Halloween to become involved in a scary story because hay fever season is a horror of its own! Imagine your immune system, enjoying the day and minding its own business when suddenly, a bunch of pollen barges through the door. Thinking the pollen is an army of invaders, your immune system triggers its defense system and releases histamine to fight back. And boy, does it fight, maybe even a little too much because it can lead to some pretty awful symptoms (as you already know). So, what can you do to get out of this mess? Here are some suggestions on how to feel better in no time at all.

  • Avoid triggers by spending less time outdoors when pollen counts are high
  • Wear a mask when mowing the lawn or gardening
  • Keep the windows and doors of your home closed
  • Dry your laundry inside
  • Change the filters in your home often
  • Invest in an air purifier
  • Change your clothes after being outdoors
  • Shower and wash your hair before bed
  • Try over-the-counter medications

Say Goodbye to Allergy Symptoms

With some simple changes to your daily lifestyle, you can easily reduce the number of hay fever symptoms you experience. So go ahead and start today as there is no better time to get control and end the misery that comes from this hay fever horror show. 

And if you are still struggling to find some relief after switching things up, head on in to see your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic for more advice and tips. Don't forget to get an adjustment too! Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to help calm the symptoms of seasonal allergies by restoring function to the body's nervous, respiratory, and immune systems. Getting an adjustment is quick and easy, but even better than that, it's safe and effective, no matter how scary your symptoms may be!
